Lead sheet, one of the oldest and most durable roofing materials, has been known to last for over two hundred years. Lead is commonly applied in heritage roofing situations to replace existing roofs, cappings and flashings. Additionally it is a sturdy material which is mouldable making it perfect for roofing applications. Typically used in combination with other materials such as slate, lead acts as a perfect sealer of cracks and crevices, protecting your heritage building from decay. Lead is watertight, recyclable and aesthetically pleasing and can last up to a century if installed correctly. However it is a tricky material to work with, requiring expert fabrication, fitment and welding to maximise its longevity. Luckily Combined Roofing Australia are experts with lead and all heritage roofs.
